Former Barcelona forward Abel Ruiz has been talking about Braga team-mate Francisco Trincao and reckons the 20-year-old will be a hit at the Camp Nou.

Barcelona announced in January that they had agreed a deal to sign the youngster on a five-year contract for €31 million.

Abel Ruiz knows Trincao well, having moved to Braga in January, and says he was glad to see his new team-mate join the Catalan giants.

“He is an incredible player, with personality and an enviable quality, a good dribbler, a good shot,” he said.

“I’m sure he will do very well, I’m glad he signed for Barça, I get along very well with him.”

Trincao has been in great form for Braga in 2020 and has six goals in 12 appearances since the start of the year in all competitions.
